Most restaurants flashes the glow sign notices as 'Happy Hours'. You can have drinks or food at cheaper rates as compared to rates during the rest of the day. Friends, in life if you live to enjoy certain hours of your day, as your happy hour, then your life would make a lot much difference.
Most of us spend the entire day just completing our tasks. The work at home and in office or could be managing business, these are never ending process. Some of you even think that 'I would be enjoying once I retire,' or 'Once I get the desired income then I will start to enjoy life.'
Friends, life is too short to wait, plan & postpone. What you feel can be done tomorrow, may not be done at all. (Lines from my third upcoming book).
You should keep certain hours in the day just for yourself & learn to enjoy life. May be, you like singing or writing or playing certain sport or going to gym or attending certain hobby class etc. You have to give yourself at least an hour to do what you like to do from the bottom of your heart. Studies tells us, if we do what we are interested in, then our enthusiasm gets multiplied and it helps us in achieving better results. So if you like singing and if you spend at least 20 minutes a day to sing for yourself, so it won't just help you relax, but it would multiply your energy that you can use in your other works.
20 minutes in a day and that's all you have to give. Don't put it on weekends, just do it daily. Some of you may say, 'my life is busy,' 'I have work load,' or 'I have little baby to look after.' Friends, its your life! 1440 minutes of life every day you get from God; is it hard for you to spend just 20 minutes for yourself?
We are not trees to just grow at each second; we are physical bodies, which needs rest & happy hours. We are not flower to just smell good; we are physical bodies, which stinks, requires sleep & enjoyment. We are not sun to just give light; we have to give light to our self first & then to others.
The meaning of Happy hours is different from person to person. May be for someone, spending time with their children could be their happy hours. As long as, you are doing an activity that makes you feel happy, then you are on the right track. You are the best judge for yourself. You know better if happiness which you feel is real happiness or just its shadow.
Writing puts me into happy hours; I am thankful to Almighty that I am able to spend half of the time in a day to write. I wish you able to do & achieve what you desire to do or become in life.
I wish you life full of happy hours !
